‘The Inbetweeners 2’ Premiere: No Three-quel? ‘For Us, It’s the End of the Story’

Carnage converged on Leicester Square’s Vue cinema Wednesday night. The cause: the virgin outing of Entertainment Film’s “The Inbetweeners 2.”

Arriving in uncharacteristic style, and without a briefcase in sight, Simon Bird joined James Buckley, Joe Thomas and Blake Harrison on the red carpet to celebrate their Antipodean adventure. Greg Davies, who plays head teacher Mr. Gilbert, tailed close to the quad, ready to control any unprecedented chaos.

Producer Spencer Millman divulged how everyone had become all hot and bothered filming in the Australian Outback. “It was about 118-122 degrees when we were out there for a week. To the extent that we were filming with flying drones, it was so hot, their landing gear melted,” he explained.

Meanwhile, Buckley dished out his best back-handed compliments to the writers/directors Damon Beesley and Iain Morris. “I described it as a flat-packed script, in which we just opened it up and the directions are there. It’s idiot-proof,” he said. “Which is useful,” Bird dryly concluded.

Following his attempted praise, Buckley jokingly nailed the coffin. “That’s all I’m going to say about Iain and Damon, because they’re awful directors!”

The hijinks finally halted as the last guests journeyed indoors, but not before Beesley laid the boys to bed. Despite the first pic’s $88 million worldwide haul, the actors are approaching their 30s. “It’s about a time in your life, for us, it’s the end of the story,” said Beesley, echoing chatter among the cast that this may be the last of the “Inbetweeners” films. The film opens in the U.K. Wednesday.
